    Default Double Wake

    Well this weekend, we are going to Lake Powell with a group of friends. There will be a coule of boats going. My buudy and I saw a video on youtube in regards to a double wake. Two boats have to be side by side with weight on the inside of the boat. This will creat a double wake. You need a longer rope so that you can surf from wake to wake. It looked awesome on the video so we thought we could try it. I will take picture of the experiment.

    I hope that you have extreme trust in the other boat driver's ability to not run into your boat. Once you see how close the other boat is, you may have second thoughts about this, especially if you choose to drink while boating.

    I know for fact in some states that is illegal, especially here in cali! The water cops will bust you in a heart beat for even driving within 50' of another moving vessel on a continuous run.

    Now if you take some bamboo, strap it between the boats, put a tarp across the bamboo, hide one State Registration Decal then you could probably get away with it if. You know when you get pulled over say" officer this is a Pontoon boat!

    Tazz you really should be careful here!!!!
